you heard from republicans -- it is like mitch mcconnell who said his job was to see that obama is never reelected. so, he has an edge year. he does have leverage. but it will be a long haul. he does need partners. >> rich mcconnell is on record as saying that -- mitch mcconnell is on the record as saying that he knows that the election makes some people think that the republicans are going to roll over. that does not sound like compromise. >> your definition of compromise is rolling over and excepting higher tax rates. that is the democratic definition of compromise. i would never suggest bias. the president ran -- i will say it -- the most negative campaign. he did not run on his record. he could not. he did not run on a program. there is one thing he got a mandate for, and he now has a mandate to raise the top tax rate on two percent of the population by four. ? that is the smallest mandate in american history. >> can i say something? >> no, not until i am done. this is true. i am not going to get into this for meridian -- >what the republicans will agree to come up brainer c

friday when president obama came into the east room and made a very short speech. very clear about what his plan is and what he wanted. here's the president with one challenge to members of congress. >> obama: i'm open to compromise. i'm open to new ideas. i'm committed to solving our fiscal challenges. but i refuse to accept any approach that isn't balanced. >> bill: what does he mean by that? >> balanced. he's saying first of all it's not just spending cuts. it has to be revenues as well. second, he's rejecting the john boehner approach which is boehner saying i'll agree to revenues as long as they come as a result of economic growth. in other words, we won't legislate changes in taxes. we'll hope that revenues go up. he's saying no, that won't work for me. you're not going to legislate spending cuts. this is the president talking. not legislate revenue changes as well. >> bill: all right. so there are -- the most immediate decision maybe facing the congress is that as you point out, all of the bush tax cut

in on president obama's plan that taxes go up on $250,000. the surprising word from a leading conservative commentator coming up. stephen moore joins us on his conversation with tough talking senate majority leader mitch connell. lori: this is kuwait. proving that is chump change. change that you find in the couch. it makes the golden globe. melissa: time for stocks now as we do every 15 minutes. nicole petallides is standing by. nicole: we have gone over that unchanged lines throughout the day. the dow is moving higher as are both the nasdaq composite and s&p 500. do not forget last week we saw heavy selling 300-point down days. it was the worst week in a month. it showed some conviction to the selling after the election was complete. right at the top of the show, you talked about the fiscal cliff. there certainly is that feeling. we have seen selling of dividends, utilities and telecom throughout last week. you do see some arrows across the board without arrows. jefferies stepping in. by the rest of the investment bank. sharon williams making an acquisition for 2.3 billion. when you thin

one more term. he has promised robust oversight of the obama administration. >> i am sure he has. and speaking of oversight, isn't that one of the few places on the senate side where there might be a new -- sorry. >> tom carp ser set to take over. leiberman is retiring. the ranking republican is term limited out as we were talking about with the house votes. senate republicans have the same rule. he has been very serious. he has a very talented group of people working for him on that committee doing investigations and what not. and carper, i actually think, that they will get along pretty well and both will likely be focused on the government affairs part of the committee. not that they will ignore homeland security. i am sure they won't. but i think they have an interest in that area. >> top seats changing hands. >> the budget committee. conrad is retiring. patty murray is up for the seat. we say she is the favorite for it, and i agree. but i do think there is a possibility that she does not take it. last time i talked to her people they said she hasn't made a decision yet. you

much and where? >> well i think this is a tremendous opportunity for barack obama to lead. he chose not to do that at the start of his administration in 08. instead of focusing on the economy went right after obamacare. he is basketball player. i think he could pull the ultimate head fake and actually not raise rates on small businesses. the markets would soar. he would get a lot of goodwill. he gets the budget in place and doesn't touch tax rates on small businesses, i think his approval ratings and market goes through the roof. rick: i had thought maybe we would hear from pete where the republicans would be willing to compromise instead of where he thinks the president would be willing to come promize. but, sometime mon, that said, 47% of the american people voted for mitt romney and the points that he was making during the campaign. don't those folks have any kind of say in this? >> sure absolutely. i think, the country wants, i think as the president said, that he got a mandate for action and i think it is now going to come down to his leadership along with the house and senate
